A series of free singing workshops for carers are being arranged by the council.
Workshops are open to all carers - that's anyone who provides care or support to a relative, friend or neighbour on a regular basis.
By supporting carers and providing some fun and social time with others in similar situations, it is hoped that these workshops will pave the way for an ongoing carers choir in South Gloucestershire.
The singing workshops will offer people a chance to get together and learn some simple songs with fantastic harmonies, and will be led by music teacher and natural voice practitioner Indigo Craig. Indigo runs a series of community singing groups and her workshops encourage people to use their voice, sing and really enjoy the benefits of singing in harmony.
Starting with four taster sessions held at different venues around South Gloucestershire, followed by a regular weekly session at a venue to be confirmed, the weekly sessions will see singers work towards a performance which will take place during Carers Week (10 to 14 June).
The other taster session dates and venues:
Wednesday 13 March, 1.30pm to 3.30pm, Cherry Room, Bailey's Court, Baileys Court Road, Bradley Stoke, BS32 8BH.
Friday 15 March, 11am to 1pm, The Village Hall, Emerson Way, Emersons Green, BS16
Tuesday 19 March, 1.30pm to 3.30pm, The Park Centre, High Street, Kingswood, BS15 4AR.
Wednesday 20 March, 11am to 1pm, The Armadillo, Station Road, Yate, BS37 4FW.
There is car parking available at each venue but at some venues spaces are limited.
Carers wishing to take part are encouraged to book a place by telephoning 01454 868267, or alternatively just turn up at a venue of your choice.
